I haven’t been posting my updates as quickly as I should. This was done a couple of days ago.
I enlisted my boyfriend to help me do this part. For two reasons:
1) The last time I used an Exacto knife I cut off the tip of my pinky.
2) Something for him to do. He’s not as enthusiastic about cosplay as I am unfortunately.
I went to A.C. Moore and Loew’s (the easiest craft and hardware store to get to at the time) to get supplies. For the staff head base I got two 7″ wooden stitching hoops which I used just the inside hoop. And then hot glued each inside hoop together. Then I took my old base and glued it together with that.
The reason I elevated the height was so I could hide battery packs a lot better. Before, my battery pack could just barely fit in there as it was a last minute addition. What I plan for the new base is to hide everything electrical in it lol. It’s going to get a coating of gesso and then spray painted brown. Then a middle strip would be painted blue.
